Gwyneth Paltrow: “I can’t believe we have a magazine. It’s really cool just to be able to hold it and for it to be a physical representation of goop. It’s pretty great.”
NEW YORK – Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t afraid to speak her mind. After being a tabloid target for most of her adult life, she’s developed a thick skin when it comes to haters and internet trolls. Yes, she tries too hard. Yes, she gives advice no matter what the potential media backlash. And yes, she probably could have come up with an alternative metaphor to “conscious uncoupling” when in 2014 she announced her divorce from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
But to her credit, Gwyneth keeps putting herself out there with fearless abandon. In the course of ratcheting down her movie career to raise her children and devote herself to her GOOP lifestyle/wellness brand, she’s found the time to write three best-selling cookbooks.
Last September saw her launch GOOP Magazine which is the culmination of the steady expansion of her brand and her ability to reach a vast audience anxious to benefit from cutting-edge food and health advice. In typical brazen Paltrow style, she served as the cover model for the first issue that featured her lying down nearly naked and covered in beauty mud.
“I’m really excited,” declared Paltrow. “I can’t believe we have a magazine. It’s really cool just to be able to hold it and for it to be a physical representation of goop. It’s pretty great. And to be able to leverage the Condé (Nast) team for the creative direction—amazing. They’re just leagues ahead of us with that stuff, so it’s been really cool.”
